Napoli and AC Milan will lock horns in a crucial Seria a encounter at the San Paolo in Naples on Saturday.
Napoli started the season under their new boss Carlo Ancelotti in the best possible way, as they defeated Lazio 2-1 away from home. This will be Milan’s first game of the season, as the bridge disaster in Genoa brought about the postponement of their last week’s scheduled game.
The Rossoneri have brought in some big name signings like Gonzalo Higuain, Mattia Caldara and Tiemoue Bakayoko, after a slow start to their transfer campaign. All the three players are expected to make their official debut against Napoli.
CARLO ANCELOTTI –
We need to be focused, it’s an important match where we want to present this Napoli to our fans and improve on what we did last weekend against an opponent which expects a lot from this match. It’s a renewed Milan surrounded by enthusiasm, we hope it’ll be beautiful for us.
GENNARO GATTUSO –
This Napoli still resemble Sarri’s. He’s put his print on them, but he still has a lot to do. No-one, not even those who didn’t play, could speak badly of him: he was coherent and he’d hold his heart in his hand. He never lied, he was a maestro and we took a leap in quality under him. We can become stronger than last season, but we need time.

Napoli are still not playing at their best and it will take some time for Carlo Ancelotti to implement his brand of football. Meanwhile, Milan now have a very strong squad and Gonzalo Higuain could make the difference in his debut match.
